Amiga & AROS As Amiga Inc is about to re-enter the computer arena with new AmigaOS4 powered desktop systems as well as with 3rd party embedded products utilizing AmigaDE technology pre-installed, there are a growing number of people who wonder what an advanced classic AmigaOS currently offers. This was an important reason for me to write a simple to understand WinUAE tutorial, so this would hopefully help interested people with setting up a fun and easy to use emulated AmigaOS environment on widely available mainstream Windows computers. This article also includes many WinUAE screenshots and information on acquiring and using freely available software.

It's been awhile since I've seen a readable article on the status of Amiga emulation. So many get bogged down in details and cryptic abreviations that they lose me fast (Come on... It's been a long time since I stayed up 24/7 w/my little Amiga 500. I've lost those brain cells years ago).

Nice to see someone giving me a reason to boot up my Fellowship emulator. 8)=

On a related note, has anyone noticed the total silence from the Amiga community regarding Motorolas lack of a PPC desktop chip in their future plans? I see Apple's scrambling to come up with viable alternatives (Hammer or IBM PPC seems to be the two major contenders), but nothing out of the old Amiga camp regarding their upcoming plans and hardware.

On an unreleated note... is it me, or have the popup ads on OSNews.com gotten rather annoying recently. It seems I'm constantly having to close out a popup just to read an article here. Hmm...
